Financial help for Christy Scaggs

Hello my name is Julie Scaggs, and I am starting this fundraiser to help with caring for my baby sister Christy Blunt. Christy had a severe brain injury over a year ago, and I have been her sole provider and caretaker since Aug. of last year! Christy is totally incapacitated , she has a feeding machine that feeds her through a tube in her stomach, she is incontenant, cannot speak for the most part and is basically bed ridden. I have a full time job, one of which I love very much, as well as it provides the financial means to keep this operation running I pay for all of Christys needs as well as I pay for her caretaker out of pocket due to her not qualifying for help from any intity. Her formula alone costs $ 120 a week and her diapers , wipes , and the such are quite costly. I pay her caretaker a very low fee but it is still 90 %of my weekly pay, and it has come down to this. Christy is my world and my everything and she needs to stay at home with me where she can get better. She will get some financial compensation some day for her injury , I am just completely out of funds now, and law suits take sometimes years. So if anyone out there has anything they can help with, Christy and I would be so grateful , and if not, if it's only prayers, or good, positive healing energy we would be so thankful as well. I have managed everything g alone this entire, time but it has come to a point where I have to ask for help . I am not one that likes to ask for help making this a difficult decision, but the only decision I have to make. Christy and I thank each and every one of you for reading this, and we want to tell you that we love you, and we are so happy that we are alive! God bless you all and peace be with you always!
Love Julie F. Scaggs
